About
Description
A charming, rustic pousada in the mountains of Minas Gerais where peace, good conversation, great food are the main attractions. Colonial-style farmhouse and guest chalets occupy a large garden with beautiful More mountain views. Complete tranquility, yet only 600 mts. down a country lane from Sao Goncalo's 18th-century village. On the Estrada Real between Diamantina, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and Serro, the first city in Brazil declared a National Heritage Trust. History, culture, and exuberant nature. Less
